Just Censor It: Nike, LeBron James Seize Unflattering Dunking Tapes

By Debbie Schlussel
For decades, Nike has marketed itself as hip, brash, and all about freedom, openness, and uber-tolerance (to the point that it gave HAMAS front-group CAIR free t-shirts). But it’s all a lie.
At least, that’s the experience of Xavier University guard Jordan Crawford and those who filmed him putting down a two-handed jam over NBA pro LeBron James of the Cleveland Cavaliers.
James and the Nike henchmen at LeBron James’ Skill Academy–his basketball camp in Akron, Ohio–demanded and seized videotapes from everyone and anyone who might have taped a college player besting the egomaniacal pro on the court. Some video was snuck out, and now Nike and LeBron have succeeded in getting YouTube to censor that, too. Get your T-Shirt to mark the occasion (thanks to Fan IQ for the sartorially splendorous tip).

Looks like a certain NBA star has been listening to too much “Brian Manilow” on his IPod.
So, with that, perhaps Nike can introduce it’s new slogan: Just Seize It. Now, we know what the swoosh emblem means: the speed with which Nike confiscates video.
Here’s Jordan Crawford talking about it (I think I need a Mumblish-to-English translator–and no, that’s not racist, since I always tease my little brother that he sometimes speaks Mumblish, too).

More confirmation of what we always knew: the left and celebrities are the kings of censorship . . . and hypocrisy. Free speech for them, but not for you.
LeBron James remind me of a far inferior version of the Biblical King Pharoah, who pretended and wanted people to think that he didn’t go to the bathroom like the rest of us.

Can someone give me an OVER-RATED chant for Lebron?
I grant him, he is one of the best, but he is his own best promoter. He isn’t MJ or Magic or Larry and his ego is the worst. He didn’t give interview after loss to Orlando Magic. What a baby. Maybe another Isiah Thomas Jr. Now he has Shaq on his side. I think they will tear up the league. That is dangerous. Lebron and Shaq. Shaq wants revenge on Kobe. Lakers v. Cavs will be huge next year. Cavs v. Magic, Cavs v Celts will be huge as well.
